Ghana penalty ‘dubious’ – Ugandan coach

Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has blasted as “dubious” the penalty awarded to the Black Stars against his team on Saturday in Kumasi.

“Anyone can go take a look at the recording and see what I am talking about,” said Sredojevic, whose team held the home side to a 1-1 draw in a Group E tie of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier.

The Tunisian referee awarded Ghana a penalty on 47 minutes after defender Denis Iguma picked the ball and Waris Majeed went down in the box as the home fans also booed the decision.

Dede Ayew, son of Ghanaian legend Abed Pele, netted the penalty.

Ghanaian fans

Ghana winger Christian Atsu believes fans apathy contributed to their below par 1-1 draw display against Uganda at home in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

“We need the fans. We apologise to them that things went wrong in Brazil. We are hoping that it will not continue like this,” the Chelsea-owned player said in a post-match interview.

“If they want the country to move forward, they should not look at what happened in Brazil but look at the future and make it better.”
